Only Globelet reusable cups are being used at the street party for ALL drinks and soup. Globelets are New Zealand-made and are recyclable, reusable, BPA-free. You buy your globelet for $2 when you buy your first drink, then the Globelet is yours to use for the night (you can even rinse it at our rinse station!). At the end of the night you can take it home or return it for a refund
Glow Paint not Glow Sticks
Glowsticks are lots of fun, but not so great for our environment. The chemical generally used in them is Dibutyl phthalate, which can cause irritation or nausea.
So we have come up with something that has less of an impact on our environment: Resene have a paint called "Nightlight" (http://www.resene.co.nz/comn/whtsnew/FX-Nightlight.htm). Follow the safety instructions for this paint and combine it with the idea in this video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e1ZHnVn-vPc) to make glow-in-the-dark bracelets that your children will want to keep and bring out every night! You could also create glow in the dark wands using sticks if short of time. And there must be many other creative ways to play with this stuff!
